It was a pleasure and surprise to me to realize i could rescue this post and bring it back to life! It was first pubished 5 years ago, by TVSeries. And featuring a great interview to Mike Danavan! I tought these files were lost…but, i was wrong!
Enjoy the original post below!
MIML ( Now The Real Music Divas ) exclusive interview to Mike Danavan:
I feel Mike ‘Mickey’ Danavan a friend, I know him since around 10 years ago. I can’t be objective for presenting him to you, that’s why I made an interview to him.
I met him from his firsts Madonna’s remixes (he remixed almost her full discography!!!) but later I started to appreciate the remixes for other loved artists he usually does: Michael Jackson, Depeche Mode, Britney, Kylie and a loooong list.
Sensitive, funny, loved, friendly. How do I introduce Mike Danavan to people who don’t know him yet…?
An interview was my idea.
I sent him the questions and the result is this amazing, interesting and funny report.
He sent me this mp3. It’s so Mickey Danavan, transparent; that I decided to not post a transcription, but the audio.
Know this fantastic Dj, Mixer, Producer, personally, in his own words!
